Gustard’s Flagship DAC

The DAC-X22 will fit right into your high-end audio setup. Using the new, top-of-the-line ESS ES9038PRO DAC chip, it aims for both excellent analytical and musical qualities. The unit offers fully balanced operation using the XLR outs, and can run both the RCA and XLR outputs simultaneously. Writing from the experience of owning a large collection of DACs, Hi-Fi Haven’s StevenZ compares the DAC-X22 favorably: “Today, for the first time, I was transported into the music in what was probably one of the most realistic experiences I've ever had in audio. All at my desk in my office. Hard to believe? Yeah, me as well.”

Note: At checkout, choose the black or silver model in 110V or 220V.
